The Breatach are an oviparous race whose eggs depend upon their moon phases for development. They have been fighting a losing battle against the effects of the disaster to their moon and have applied to their friends on Etimon to see if the Federation is able to help them come up with a solution.
They are serious though not as stoic as Vulcans. The adults of the race settle into a caste system of Scientists, Engineers, Farmers, and Politicians. They work hard at their chosen professions and have little time for fun. They find that a childish pursuit.
Their young are joyous and spend a great deal of their time at play.
The eggs of the Breatach are a mottled aubergine and peach color that glow in the light of the moon. But while the grottos are lit by floating globes of light, the light is not as brightly lit as they were before the moon was damaged.
The young of the Breatach are aquatic when they are first hatched but birth defects have taken their toll of the young fry. Fewer and fewer of them are surviving to emerge from the waters and take their places in the schools of their race.
